The liberal media wants everyone to say “undocumented citizens.”
But true Americans who follow the law know what they are: illegal immigrants. Or illegal aliens, if you prefer.
The bottom line is they are here illegally, and saying “undocumented” is just a way of trying to say they aren’t breaking any laws.
That’s wrong. And the Department of Justice just made this plain to every lawyer in the U.S.
At long last, the DOJ has put its foot down and said, “you have to give these people an accurate label.”
“The United States Department of Justice sent out an agency-wide email that told its employees to refer to people living illegally in the United States as ‘illegal aliens’ and not ‘undocumented.’
‘The word ‘undocumented’ is not based in U.S. code, and should not be used to describe someone’s illegal presence in the country,’ the email, obtained by CNN, stated.
The code referred to in the email is 8 U.S. Code § 1101, which defines various identifiers from ‘attorney general’ to ‘child.'”
Liberals don’t care about upholding the law, which is why they don’t care if immigrants are actual citizens.
Makes sense they’d give criminal aliens a pass, too, doesn’t it?
Furthermore, in calling illegals undocumented, liberals insult every hard-working immigrant who came here legally:
Those legal individuals followed the rules, did the right thing, and continue to respect our country in every way possible. And that’s great.
But they are ignored by the media, who only cares about lawbreaking border-jumpers who endanger themselves and children to cross the border.
This move by the DOJ is significant: it means the government agency will not mince words when discussing this issue.
Aliens who cross the border illegally are illegal immigrants, and to shade the issue with the word “undocumented” is disgraceful.
You’ve always hated the term “undocumented,” haven’t you?
